Going in through the front door

The front door represents your homes first point of entry for yourself, your family and your guests. Given that the summer season ahead is one of gatherings and visitors galore, there will probably be more traffic going through your front door over the next two to three months than at any other time this year.  With that in mind, spoke with Randy Sibbald of Brock Doors & Windows , to discuss everything front doors.

First Impressions

“It is fair to say that the front door of your home is quite possibly one of its most important features.” Sibbald says.  General home aesthetics,  safety and energy efficiency are all partially determined by the suitability of your front door, which remains the most likely method of home entry for burglars and a primary cause of increases in home energy bills.

Energy Efficiency

“If your front door is over 15 years old, poorly insulated or shows signs of damage, it may be contributing to increased energy costs in your home.” Sibbald explains. If this sounds like your front door, a brand new energy efficient door is the logical, aesthetic and economical choice. Brock Doors & Window’s energy efficient front doors are made with special insulation properties that will regulate your homes temperature and protect it from the elements better than your old door ever could while offering an amazing return on aesthetics and investment in the long-term.

Cost Savings

“Many people truly don’t realize how much energy and money a new front door will save them. ” Sibbald explains. It is a common misconception that replacing a front door will end up costing more than it saves in the long term.  How much you save will, of course, depend on the amount of money you spend on the door itself but you should know that there are a wide variety of energy efficient options available to fit almost any budget. If that’s not motivation enough, you will also be eligible for a tax credit of up to $500 if you install an Energy Certified front door.
